Blessed Easter & Happy Spring

I do hope all of you are doing fabulous. Tomorrow is Easter Sunday Morning, how exciting. What a wonderful reminder of Jesus suffering, death and resurrection.

I just got this die from spellbinders from a friend and thought I would create something with it. :) The sentiment is from Gina K & paper from me and my big ideas.

You all have a Blessed day.

A Little Box

Good Morning! Well, I went to my girlfriends house this weekend, the artsy crafty one :), and she gave me this box to decorate. She tries to get me inspired to do alternate things.. I think she succeeded a little.

This is a Graphic 24 ATC box, which I am using as a scripture box to send to my mother. the paper is K&company, the image is from Graphic 24 "FabScraps" which I painted black.




This would be my second box she gave me, this one is some what better then the first one :)..

Thanks for stopping by, and have a blessed day.

Mighty Sea

Good Morning, yes I am up early enjoying the sunshine and 50 degree weather :). About time. 

I made this card for Our Daily Bread challenge "water". The stamp is "The Mighty Sea" from ODB. I love this stamp but I have to learn how to color it better.  I colored it with copics and did the sky with a Stamping up stencil.

I also won "Shining the Light"  for this card.
 

Well I got to go, I am going into Newport to see my crafty friend..

Have a blessed day..

Gossip

Good Morning all my blogging Friends.
 
Lately I have been seriously sensitive to gossip & slander; so this will be a little long. :)
Telephones remind me of gossip, this one is from Flourishes. Gossip and slander seems to be the conversation of today. I was in a prayer group and before it started a sister began to slander the pastor, I stopped it immediately and she remained quiet. My grandmother used to tell us, if you can't say something nice don't say anything. 

Proverbs 16:27-28 A worthless man digs up evil, While his words are like scorching fire. A perverse man spreads strife, And a slanderer separates intimate friends. (A slanderer is worthless and perverse -- spreading strife.) 

Mat 12:36  But I say unto you, That every idle word that men shall speak, they shall give account thereof in the day of judgment.

On my job we are called to be peace makers, and when someone comes to me with trash I kindly rebuke them and remind them, "How is this edifying some one?"  If our words can not bring peace, uplift, build up, then we do not need to say anything.  And mind you, this is going on with people who claim to be Christians.

As I remind myself of Mat. that on the day of judgement, every idle word I speak is waiting for me to accuse or release me. I do not want to be ashamed on that day before my Savior.

I received this in the mail from Worthy News yesterday and it brings home what Satan is trying to do among the saints.

One day, a hungry lion who lived nearby spotted these four friends and became determined to catch one. He was no match for all four of them at once, so he would follow them and watch carefully, hoping to catch one alone. Every time he saw one lagging the least bit behind, he would sneak up and whisper to him that the others had been saying unkind things about him. This, he did with each bull until finally all four began to feel suspicious and uneasy around one another. Each thought that the other three were plotting against him.
When the lion succeeded in breaking the trust among them, the bulls went their separate ways....... and one by one, he devoured them.

I'm sure you can see the analogy here. The enemy would love nothing more than to divide us and break the trust among us in the body of Messiah. He knows full well that if he can just get us separated, he can come in for the kill! 


Well that is it for me, have a blessed day.

ON My Mind

How is everyone? Being creative I'm sure :)

 Well I have enjoyed my time off. I was able to create some cards, play with my friend and now I have just a few more days left before going back to work on Monday. I have gotten a taste of what retirement will be like and can I say "I LOVE IT" Can't wait until it is my time. :)

Any who.. I created these two cards.

I created this card for SCS  CAS (CAS262) neutral colors. This is an A2

Reciepe:
Paper: Recollections Ivory & Kraft
Dies: Memory Box Norwich corner and spellbinders fancy tags.
Stamp: Our Daily Bread Flourished verses.

My next one is for Less is More "Green & Yellow"

I used Caserta Bloom die by memory box.  And the stamp is one I picked up at Micheal's for a dollar. This card is a 3 1/2 by  31/2

Well that is it for me. I want to leave you with this thought.

Jeremiah 29:11

  For I know the plans I have for you," declares the LORD, "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.


  Have a fabulous day & May God Bless you & Keep you.

Thinking of you

Good Morning;
I went over to my girlfriends house who is very artsy crafty and she made me, yes made me :) decorate a plan box, way out of my comfort box. Well this is it, I did love doing it and got another smaller one that I am still thinking on.

I painted it then used SU design paper. I decided to put a drawer handle on it so it would be easier to lift. It came out ok, but nothing like the beauties I have seen. But at least I tried.

I also created this card for CAS on Sundays (color)


The stamps are from  Blue Ridge Impressions
This is an A2 card
